bitd, nero for windows did the burn fairly low maintenance like. In linux just use k3b. Things are fairly well recognized these days. Of course that assumes that you have linux already installed. If the download is the issue, there is a wget for windows that you might get to work if all else fails.
Be sure to burn image, and not make a data disk of course. This probably isn't the default in windows based apps. Not that I would know much about windows. I've tried to get my vista to install service pack 1 so I could install service pack 2 a couple of times. It fails of course, but not until the very end and 4 hours later. At which point it reverts to the pre-install. For another hour of completely wasted time. Which is probably why I run linux.
